PC Preview - 'Sabotage'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2007

Genre: Stealth-Action
Publisher: Gamecock
Developer: Replay Studios
Release Date: 2008

"We're a team based in Germany," the developer said, "and we're making a World War II stealth action game."

An awkward silence followed.

Most of the World War II games that have come out up until now have been riding a bizarre nostalgia wave. WWII has come to occupy an odd niche in American society as the last good fight; after that, it's all downhill and shades of gray.

Sabotage is most notable because it's not being made by Americans or Brits, so it's coming from an obviously different place.

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under Sierra Gamers' Event - Sierra Gamers' Week 2007

Face off against new enemies, new horrors and new weapons in the stand alone expansion pack F.E.A.R. Perseus

Xbox 360 Preview - 'Mass Effect'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2007

Genre: RPG
Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios
Developer: BioWare
Release Date: November 2007

Mass Effect may be the most highly anticipated Xbox 360 title to not be spawned from an established franchise, but the universe-exploring RPG has something else going for it that might be worth as much as a million-selling predecessor: the BioWare logo emblazoned on its packaging. More importantly, BioWare’s trademarked style of highly customizable experiences, introduced to console gamers with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire, infuses every inch of Mass Effect, its most ambitious project to date.

Following three-plus years

'The Club' (PS3/X360/PC) - Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under Leipzig Games Convention - Leipzig Games Convention 2007 - Day 1

PS3/X360 Preview - 'Tony Hawk's Proving Ground'

by Rainier on Jan. 1, 2006 @ 1:30 a.m. PST | Filed under E3 - Post - E3 2007

Genre: Extreme Sports
Publisher: Activision
Developer: Neversoft
Release Date: Fall 2007

For the ninth core release of the venerable Tony Hawk franchise, Neversoft appears to be tossing in everything but the kitchen sink — though we wouldn't be especially shocked if such an item appeared in the game's compelling new Skate Lounge mode. As expected, Tony Hawk's Proving Ground will build around the modernized core developed for last year's Tony Hawk's Project 8, but the amount of new content (in the form of features and new gameplay mechanics) is simply staggering.
